Everything Maryland!

by John T. Marck


While relaxing at home, John heard Yoko play the first movement to Beethoven's Piano Sonata No 14 in C Sharp Minor (Moonlight Sonata). Intrigued, he asked her to play the same chords in reverse order. She did, and this was the inspiration for "Because." Although simple, its lyrics are beautiful, and the three-part harmonies of John, Paul, and George are among their best.


because the world is round,

it turns me on,

because the world is round


because the wind is high,

it blows my mind,

because the wind is high


love is old, love is new,

love is all, love is you

because the sky is blue,

it makes me cry,

because the sky is blue,

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah
